We created a prototype that communicated our plans for the app. The prototype was highly interactive, which allowed our test group of athletes to provide new insight into how the app’s features and functionality could be improved.
Once the wristband is paired with the app, an athlete can place their phone at the finish line, select their distance, and get moving. JAWKU Speed uses the mobile device’s front-facing camera to record when you reach the finish line. The wristband records the exact starting time and the mobile device creates a photo finish accurate to .01 seconds.
Given the challenging nature of Bluetooth pairing, the team is especially proud of the resulting product’s ability to connect wristband and phone in the sometimes challenging situations encountered by professional atheletes.
